"when you look at startups, try to network for captial for talent and for customers." one of the attendees, jere mcallister, who created a music media magazine for the ipad called "groovebug," just launched an app with iconic jazz label blue note. "we've partnered with other tech companies and they helped open doors for blue note." mcallister is one of more than a hundred entrepreneurs who see america's future in its startups, not necessarily in silicon valley. "we have the capital and supportive environment for these early-stage companies." the startup america partnership was launched last year. it provides startups with access to corporations, investors and services they need to grow. the latest survey of small businesses shows a slight dip in optimism. overall, the index for the national federation of independent businesses dropped 1/10 of a point to 92.8. behind that number, owners plann

cliff. and so you have to say in a low return environment, shares of multinational companies with growing earnings and dividends are probably not a bad place to be. but you want to buy when the markets are down, not when they're up, and you want to sell low quality, buy high quality, and buy them on corrections, not after big moves. i would not be surprised if you have a little bit more of a correction right here. >> susie: so let's talk a little more about this correction. it feels like a correction. between what's going on with oil prices going lower, some of these earnings reports that we've been getting. so what are the risks ahead, and is this a buying opportunity? one strategist saying today that he's pretty upbeat because with central banks around the world pouring money into the financial system, it's kind of hard to see that the global economy will freeze up. so what's your take on this? risky period or a buying opportunity? >> well, look, it remains risky because with all of the money that the central banks worldwide have pumped in and continue to pump in, you have

, given the environment we're in, does seem a touch odd. > > so what do you look at that's important? do you look at the payroll numbers? do you look at the participation numbers? > > all of them are important. they all serve and weigh into your forecast. the participation number is important because you need people participating in the workforce to push a country forward. that's at the lowest level it has been in 30 years. so there are fewer people today participating than there have been since 1981 in the workforce. the overall employment number is probably the most respected, the 114,000. that's crucial for the economy. you really need to see that kick up into the 200- to 250,000s before we start making headway into the employment problem that we have right now. > > every month they revise that number, so that will probably be changing soon. > > sure. these all are- not guesses, but there's a lot of deviation around them. and as we saw, i think last year's employment numbers were revised up 384,000 are the latest numbers. > > we'll talk to you in a month to see if we can stop scratchi
